As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short.  We went to Mammoth National Park and rode Big Hollow and North loop and had a blast. Great Flow.  If anyone gets a chance to ride them I would highly recommend them.

Buy, Sell, Trade / 3x9 drivetrain brakes and pedals
« Last post by firefighter56 on December 05, 2016, 11:52:36 AM »
Everything listed below worked perfectly when removed from the bike, it has been in the parts bin untouched for a couple years so I don't see me ever using it. 


Front and rear Juicy Five brakes (levers, lines and calipers but no rotors)


Front and rear Shimano XT shifters (rear shifter site plastic is broken but indicator still works)


Front and rear Shimano XT derailleurs


Sram 9-speed chain


Sram 9-speed (11-34) cassette


Bottom bracket for XT crank (crank not included)


Shimano M-520 SPD pedals


Front and rear 26" Bontrager wheels off older Trek Fuel EX 7 QR


Perfect to get a bike rolling for a back up, for a new rider or for your kids!  I have pictures upon request, just PM me.  Parts are used and show signs of use but still have plenty of life left in them.


Will sell everything together for $150 and I will meet anywhere around Indy or east of or you can come to my firehouse in Fishers.

Yellowwood State Forest / Next Section of Crooked Creek Trail
« Last post by Paul_Arlinghaus on December 05, 2016, 09:21:38 AM »
Here is a map showing where we are working to extend the Crooked Creek Trail.

If anyone wants to do some self paced benching, we have pin flags in the ground.  You are welcome to ride the new section as an out and back.  It needs tires to pack it down.

General Trail Information / Freeze Thaw
« Last post by Ed Strobel on December 04, 2016, 11:04:51 PM »
Freeze/thaw time again. Ride while the trail is frozen.
When the tail is in thaw the condition isn't like riding after rain and the surface is damp or wet, even if it may look the same.

Any thoughts on the dates for the 2017 Epic? Hopefully not Oct 6-8th since that's the Hilly Hundred weekend.

Brown County State Park / Re: Report Trail Issues
« Last post by Mahk on December 04, 2016, 05:40:28 PM »
Thanks Pat. 

My understanding is:

Bobcat / Bobcat Connector / Weedpatch is now, and will continue to be, a three-way intersection.   

The Bobcat Connector will remain the Bobcat Connector, in its entirety.  It now connects, and will continue to connect, the threeway intersection of Weedpatch/Bobcat Connector/the triple switchback end of Bobcat, with the top of Aynes.  Although it (Bobcat Connector) is currently an advanced trail it will eventually be made easier (see below on Weedpatch). 

Bobcat (an advanced trail) is basically a horseshoe or 'U' that has the triple switchback at the Weedpatch/Bobcat Connector end, and twists and turns its way to end at roughly the middle of the Bobcat Connector (where there is a more moderate switchback). 

Weedpatch currently serves just as an entry to (or exit from) the intersection of Bobcat/Bobcat Connector.  But, Weedpatch will eventually continue across the road as an intermediate trail, and head SE to connect with Limekiln.  Thus there will be an intermediate level route that connects Limekiln and the south end of the park, with Aynes and the (mostly) intermediate trails on the north side of the park.  Aynes, Bobcat Connector, Weedpatch, and Limekiln will all be continuous, so people won't have to go on an advanced trail (Walnut) or the road to ride from one side of the park to the other.



An addendum to the above:

I talked with Paul about this yesterday and he said that what I stated above is probably going to hold true, but there is a little more to it.  I forgot to mention that Weedpatch (an intermediate trail) will run not just from the intersection with BC/BcC to Limekiln, but also from BC/BcC to the top of Hesitation Point.  Thus Weedpatch will connect Limekiln to HP so riders can go from Limekiln to HP without having to ride Walnut. 

The BcC was initially planned to go from the top of Aynes all the way to the triple switchback end of BC as an intermediate trail, which means that all of the BcC would be made easier.  But, there is now some talk of making BC a loop, which means that the (intermediate) BcC would run just from the top of Aynes to what is now the easier entrance to BC, and the rest of what is now the BcC would become part of BC and would remain an advanced level section of trail.
